The color of leaves change to yellows, reds and browns to signal the arrival of autumn, which marks the transition from summer into winter. When autumn comes, the sky is a deep azure and mists curl across the fields. The crisp days of autumn are a perfect time to explore Britain’s countryside. Britain in Europe, one of three regions of the world including most of Canada and the United States, Eastern Asia, is famous for colored autumn foliage. In autumn, oak forests are glorious and moorland is scattered with junipers and birchwoods. The myriad of autumn colors may take your breath away. However, if visiting Britain is impossible, visitors still enjoy its fall colors through beautiful pictures.
